Chavez Jr: I Won't Sacrifice Myself To Help Canelo Win

By Miguel Rivera

WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has refused to entertain Saul "Canleo" Alvarez's request for a catch-weight of 156-pounds. Alvarez's promoter, Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya, will only make the fight if Chavez agrees to a catch-weight of 156.

Chavez's promoter, Top Rank, offered a catch-weight of 158, although Chavez's trainer Freddie Roach told BoxingScene.com that he prefers the full limit of 160-pounds. Chavez believes Golden Boy and Canelo's handlers are doing everything possible to prevent the fight from happening by taking a hard line with the catch-weight.

"I can not get down to 156 pounds. My body will not allow me to make that weight and I will not sacrifice myself for [Golden Boy] and give Canelo an advantage in the fight. I'm not afraid of the fight, it's what we want," said chavez Jr.

And now canelo is in the 2nd biggest fight of the past decade and chavez is fighting crap, off a suspension for weed, and looking like he gave Joey Chestnut a run in a hot dog eating contest. Sad but…

Where are the Floyd haters? Don't duck this thread LOL. Canelo asked to fight Chavez 4 lbs under the limit while Floyd is only asking for 2 lbs.
